Part of what makes Madison so special is our deep commitment to the arts and our compassion and understanding for the most vulnerable. It is embedded in our history, our university, and our culture. As a City, we believe that none have a voice unless all have a voice, and that means paying special attention to our must vulnerable.
With that in mind, I am thrilled that our own Madison Arts Commission is supporting Housing Initiative's presentation of "Thank you for Your Service," an award winning film by Tom Donahue about veterans and PTSD.
Please join us for the film's Wisconsin premiere at the Barrymore Theater on Tuesday, October 25th, at 7PM. The screening will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dean Loumos, Executive Director of Housing Initiatives.
Housing Initiatives and the many great partners they have brought together to program this powerful documentary and discussion are doing critical work to care for our veterans. I hope Madison residents take this opportunity to go to learn more about these important issues and the organizations that are working to address them.
